A prominent Russian journalist famous for her critical coverage of the war in Chechnya was killed Saturday in Moscow, police and prosecutors said. Anna Politkovskaya was found dead in an elevator in a Moscow apartment building, a duty officer at a central Moscow police station told The Associated Press. She had been shot to death, and a pistol and four bullets were found nearby, the Interfax news agency reported, citing police officials. Her death is being investigated as murder, said Svetlana Petrenko, a spokeswoman for Moscow Prosecutor Yuri Syomin. Politkovskaya, a tireless investigative reporter and highly respected journalist, has chronicled the killings, tortures and beatings of civilians by Russian servicemen in reports that put her on a collision course with the authorities.
